Rock of Ages is a RTS action game developed by the ACE Team and published by Atlus U.S.A Inc.

Humorous, fun and aesthetically unique are some words that would best describe Rock of the ages.

Your main objective in the game is to destroy the gate that leads to your opponents’ castle and squash their leader with your boulder; but there’s a catch, in order to get to your opponents gate you must destroy/avoid their defences using your platforming skills and reflexes. If your rock takes too much damage it will shrink and you won’t be able to inflict as much damage. Your opponent will also be attacking your castle gate at the same time as you do in order to achieve the same objective (Squash your opponents’ leader inside their respective castle). In order to minimise damage to your own gate and to slow your opponent down, you must place defences like towers, TNT and sheep (Yes, sheep). Defences cost money and the main way to gain money is to crush objects with your rock. Placing your fortifications in random places will generally be ineffective and a waste of money. Most of the maps  have ideal choke points that you must utilise to your advantage.

Party time!

Roll and smash your way through the hilarious single player campaign where you take on the role of Sisyphus and travel through time defeating historical figures and undertaking epic boss battles or go head-to-head with your friends in 2-Player battles.

Rock of Ages is a humorous game and a lot of fun to play. It’s definitely worth a look.
